Alzheimer disease is a scaring one. Even families of people who become patient are sometimes so scared from that form of dementia that they literarily leave her or him alone. Usually just one or two parents look after one person who became patient. The rest of parents leave because they are scared. One of the reasons of this fear is that patients change their behavior and sometimes they become even aggressive towards people who live with them. They are aggressive because they do not remember they are their parents and they feel as if they were strangers. Parents are also scared because we are talking about a mental problem which sometimes is felt as connected with psychiatric problems and, as a result, emberassing.
Even though a lot has been done, that's what researchers know until now. There is still so much to do in terms of breakthroughs about Alzheimer's disease.
The aim of this film is to investigate new relationship which starts between parents who take care of patient and the sick person. Due to the fact that part of the brain has a strong infection, people who are diagnosed by Alzheimer's disease do not remember their past lives properly. Therefore they have no choice and they have to live new life. Which is not necessarily bad news, someone states.
Filming this situation in a Alzheimer hospital, as a director I can state that, on the one hand it is such a awful thing not to be remembered and recognized by parents. On the other, parents who are in charge of looking after patients and are willing to overcome this tremendous state show me how to cope with this extremely difficult situation exactly starting a new relationship with their mothers, their fathers, their parents who are suffering. I registered this new path and it was moving and amazing.
What makes me glad of this film is the feelings I have experienced. I admire those people who invented a new relationship day by day so much. I just observed them and listened to them.Those people can even have fun together, thanks to the fact that they gave their new life a possibility.
